Harvest Sunday Soup Collection

The Parish will celebrate Harvest Sunday on October 8th.  Let’s show our thanks for bountiful food by bringing canned soup for Caring Cupboard!  Ready-to-Eat, pop-top cans are especially good for the kids and families that we serve.  Bring canned soup to church any time between now and October 8th.

Hospital Bag Donations Being Collected

For the past several years, Women of the ELCA have taken on the task of bringing awareness of Human Trafficking (our modern day slavery) to its ladies. If these trafficked women have been raped, the hospital keeps their clothing as evidence.  The West Virginia-Western Maryland women of the ELCA in or near the eastern panhandle are taking on the project of supplying “Hospital Bags” for these ladies.  Each bag consists of all new articles, jogging pants, tee shirt, panties, and a sports bra.  All sizes are requested.  If your church ladies would consider helping with this project, Beverly McDonald (current West Virginia-Western Maryland WELCA president), will gladly make arrangements to pick up these items.  She may be reached at 304-579-9530 or towheebev@comcast.net
